Synopsis

Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door Job Search Secrets No One Else Will Tell You by Harvey Mackay

Bestselling business author Harvey Mackay returns with USE YOUR HEAD TO GET YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR - an uplifting, amusing and jam-packed book with proven tips to guide you through the toughest job market in decades. The average person will have at least three career changes and ten different jobs by the age of 38. In this era of downsizing and outsourcing, you can never be sure your job will still exist in five years - or five weeks. So you'd better think of your career as a perpetual job search. That demands a passion for lifetime learning and the skills for relentless and effective networking. Mackay shows you how to be at your best when things are at their worst. His hard-hitting topics include: beating rejection before it beats you; warning signals that you might be losing your job; how to impress at interviews; negotiating the job you want, not the job they offer; taking advantage of the way bosses make hiring decisions; and blending the latest contact tools with old-fashioned face-to-face networking. USE YOUR HEAD TO GET YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR is the definitive A-Z career resource for the rest of your life.
